Abstract
AN INSTRUMENT WILL BE DEVELOPED THAT ALLOWS HIGH WAVELENGTH RESOLUTION AND VARIABLE SPATIAL (ANGULAR) RESOLUTION, YET MAINTAINS HIGH SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC SENSITIVITY. IT WILL OPERATE IN THE WAVELENGTH REGION OF 1 TO 5MUM; HAVE VARIABLERESOLVING POWERS, LAMBDA/DELTA LAMBDA COMPUTER) BETWEEN 500 AND 4000; HAVE AN ANGULAR RESOLUTION OF 0.5 TO 3.0 ARCSECONDS; BE DESIGNED FOR AN F/5.5, 6.5-METER ASTRONOMICAL TELESCOPE; AND BE COMPUTER CONTROLLED. THE OBJECTIVE OF PHASE I IS TO DEVELOP A DETAILED CONCEPTUAL DESIGN AND SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AND TESTING A PROTOTYPE INSTRUMENT UNDER PHASE II. MOST OF THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL BE SPENT IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS: GENERATING APPLICABLE SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS, DEVELOPING REASONABLE CONCEPT DEFINITIONS, AND PRODUCING THECONCEPT DOCUMENTATION THAT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE DESIGN.
